Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degrees with majors in Accounting Processes, Finance, General Business, Management, and Marketing are designed to familiarize students with all aspects of business while they specialize in an area that most interests them.
- Accounting Processes: The Accounting Processes major is for students that desire a career in general accounting or corporate/management accounting rather than public accounting with a CPA designation. The degree allows you to enter the accounting profession, providing a firm foundation in accounting while also allowing flexibility to enroll in several non-accounting courses to fulfill degree requirements. This program is not for students planning on taking the CPA exam, but rather prepares students to sit for the Certified Management Accountant and Certified Financial Manager Examinations.
- Finance: The Finance major gives students the expertise needed to excel in finance, whether they work for a large corporation or a small professional group. The courses give students a deep understanding of financial theory, planning and analytical skills, and the ability to think strategically. Course work includes economics, finance, and investments and credit analysis. Students graduate prepared to start their career in many areas: bank branch managers, stockbrokers, underwriters, financial planners, and financial analysts.
- General Business: The General Business major is for the person who isn't ready to specialize but wants a broad set of skills needed to start a successful business career. Coursework in accounting, economics, finance and communication prepared you for many different careers, including purchasing agent, customer service manager, supervisors, or sales manager.
- Management: Managers make decisions, develop resources, set policies, take risks and motivate their co-workers and employees. The Management major prepares students for these responsibilities and more. With coursework in all areas of management as well as a strong general business background, students will be ready for a career in human resource management, public administration, customer service, industrial production management, and health care.
- Marketing: The Marketing major is built on the four P’s – product, pricing, place of distribution and promotion. It provides students with in-depth understanding of these activities and their impact on consumers. Students also gain knowledge of the strategies, skills and technology necessary to excel in the field of marketing. These skills, coupled with a solid business background in finance, economics, accounting, management, and communication, prepare you for jobs in a broad array of fields including marketing research, advertising, public relations, marketing communications, internet marketing and sales.
Master of Business Administration (MBA) Online or on-campus, Walsh College’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) program includes courses in accounting, finance, management and related areas. Students will learn from foundation courses included in all MBA programs, integrating the wide range of skills needed in a successful business operation. Students match their courses to their own interests and career goals with specializations in 13 different areas.
